Year’s End

2009 was quite a year. It is hard to believe that at this time last year, I had only told my sister and my husband that I was pregnant.  Now I have a currently sick, but generally awesome 5 month old. My life was forever and irrevocably changed in 2009 and I wouldn’t change anything about Spencer for the world.  A few things I would change – I would have gotten off to a better start breastfeeding, I think I now know where somethings went wrong. I would also start cloth diapering sooner.  I don’t know what I was scared of. I think I am doing ok so far and 2010 is going to be even better.

Happy 2010! New Year, New Decade!

Christmas Morning

Everyone else is out running or still sleeping and I have a nursing/sleeping baby on my lap. Time to post some pictures of Christmas so far.

Mmmmm... Present

Almost Ready

I have been vacillating between grinchy and merry this holiday season. I want to be happy about it because it is my first Christmas with my son, but I haven’t wanted ti deal with the work. There are still cookies unbaked and presents unwrapped, but there is a tree and a wreath and the old stuffed joy that always hung above my parent’s fireplace. This is the first year I am hanging up since we sold my mom’s house, but it is so iconic to me. It was one of my favorite things to get out of the big box of decorations they kept in the garage and it looked so cheery above the fireplace, framed by our stockings.  It seems out-of-place on my wall, but there is a cute spot for it and maybe it will end up being a new family tradition of our little family.  I try to focus on establishing new traditions and am slowly realizing that I am assuming the “mom” role this Christmas. It seems unfamiliar, but suits me at the same time.

If I don’t post again before Friday, Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it and have a really nice day on the 25th for those who don’t.

Back to Work

I start working again tomorrow and I know I should be focusing on the good parts – flexible hours, partially working from home, my own office to pump in – but I am not. I don’t really want to go back. If my insurance wasn’t so good, I might not go back, but I should at least keep my insurance until we have a second baby.  I really have no idea how I am going to work at home when I am the only one home. A lot of my job is email based, so at least I can return emails while I am nursing him. He nurses for so long, that might actually cover the 8 hours I need to work in a day.  I thought I was being very clever going back to work right before the upcoming paid holidays, but now I am not so sure.  I still have christmas shopping to take care of and getting everything ready for my sister;s visit and my first weeks back at work at the same time. Ugh. I really didn’t think that through. At least we got the tree decorated today.

Holiday Season

I thought I would be more excited about my first Christmas with a baby. Right now, I seems like a lot of work and I am feeling very grinchy.  I don’t even want a tree. My husband wants one, so we will get one and I do want the family around the tree picture, I just don’t want to put in the effort. I want to wrinkle my nose and have it appear like Samantha on Bewitched.  I am excited about getting more cloth diapers for presents though, I set up a registry and everything. I think my problem that normally I love finding that perfect and creative present for someone and I don’t have it in me this year. I just have other things on my mind. It will be a socks and scarves kind of Christmas at my house this year. I did buy Spencer his stocking today and after I got home I realized that I bought him the exact stocking I would have wanted as a child. It is a little sparkly with red and green rick rack. So cute.
